STROUDSBURG, Pa. - Although classes resumed Monday, another strike could be looming if teachers and the school district don't come to an agreement.
Negotiations are not over between the Stroudsburg Area Education Association and the district.
"The process from here now will be to look at the formal proposal that's on the table from the board, which is the fact finders recommendations," said Cosmas Curry, superintendent of the Stroudsburg Area School District.
The fact finders report listed a recommended salary increase, a health benefit package and other issues.
Superintendent Curry wants to make sure any deal would be cost effective for the entire district.
Right now teachers are working without a contract and they have issued a strike notice for May 16th if an agreement is not reached before that time.
The Stroudsburg Area Education Association went on strike Feb. 6 and agreed to return to classes Monday, even though no new contract has been reached.
Monday's classes were delayed for two hours by snow, however.
The school board will have a meeting on Wednesday and the superintendent says he hopes to have more details about how the two sides will move forward.
